NOTD- Color Club Ms. Socialite

First, I want to apologize for not posting for a while.  All of us here have been sick off and on during the last two weeks and I have not felt like doing much of anything- I actually wore the same polish for eight days straight!  I honestly believe my house is making us sick, we have found black mold...  No worries though, it will be straightened out soon.

Now, on to the polish!!  This is Color Club Ms. Socialite, a lovely eggplant purple.  Mr. Ski even commented that he liked it, which is rare- he hardly ever pays attention!!  I could have gotten away with 2 coats, but I am a serial 3 coater...

It didn't photograph very well, we have had massive rain for days...  blah!!  Anyway, I promise to post again a lot sooner, please forgive me!!

Until Later,

Color Club Uptown Girl

Today I have another Color Club from the Rebel Debutante collection- Uptown Girl.  This is a dusty purple color, and I think I am in love!!  I love purple (nail polish only, I rarely wear purple!) and I think this one looks good on me!!

Sorry for the lack of clean up, I have a sick munchkin and I had to do this quickly....  This is probably my favorite of the collection so far, what do you think?

Are you ready for some football???

Real quick, I wanted to show you my football mani!!

I used OPI Bogota Blackberry and freehanded the tips with the orange Pixi Stix polish. (please excuse the preschooler rubble in the background!)

Go Redskins!!  Who do you root for?

Until Later,

Never Forget

I know I usually don't post on weekends, but I cannot let today pass with out saying something.  September 11, 2001 started out just like any other day for me, just like everyone else in America.  I got up, dropped Ski Jr. off at the babysitter's, and went to the job I despised.  I poured a cup of coffee, and started to pull the day's credit reports. ( I was a mortgage loan processor.)  I remember the phone ringing and someone sayingg a plane had crashed into one of the Twin Towers, and I remember thinking that it was sad, but probably just a Cessna....  Then we started getting more information, and I remember being horrified- I remember everyone huddling around the computers trying to find out as much as we could- we had no access to television.  Once the plane hit the Pentagon, we started to freak out more- we lived in a major military area, what if they hit us next?  I remember everyone spent the day trying to call loved ones, even though we didn't know anyone in the towers, and no one could get through to anyone.  I remember freaking out because I couldn't reach my babysitter, and being frightened because we were living right by the airport.  We finally left work early, and I rushed to get Ski Jr, and spent the rest of the day and long into the night in front of the television, crying non stop... 

I know everyone has their own story of that day, and I thank God that I lost no one close to me, and I pray for the families that did.  I want to thank those of you that serve our country and have love ones that serve.

NOTD- Color Club Best Dressed List

This is the next polish from Rebel Debutante- Best Dressed List.  It is a brownish color that seems to have a bit of pink in it on me....  I don't think I am a fan.  I like bright colors on me, and this is just way to neutral. Oh well, they all can't look fabulous on me!!

I wore this for a week (I got lazy, and then I was sick!) and I had not one chip, and only minor tipwear!!  Color Club has a great formula!

Until later,

NOTD- Color Club High Society

Today I have the second polish in The Rebel Debutante collection- High Society.  This is kind of a taupey gray color on me.  It is very pretty, but it is another one that I don't know how I feel about it on me....

The formula on this one was a bit tricky, but that may be user error!!  These are my first real Color Club polishes, and I have to say I love them so far, even if I am iffy on the colors!!

I also wanted y'all to know that even though I don't reply to your comments all the time, I do read them, and I appreciate all of them!!

Until Later,
